How to SPFX : Sugarplum Fairy

Saturday I had the pleasure to once again teach a 1 hour panel on how to do a specific special effects (spfx) makeup at Thundercon 2016.

This year I chose to do the “Sugarplum Fairy” from the movie “Cabin in the Woods”.

Many of you have come through and gotten some of my M.U.D makeup. Or if you remember my post a few months back about why I choose to work with pro-lines vs just store bought makeup.

Contest Weiners

Aww no one answered so no one won! It’ll tell you anyways

 

The reason I had blue on lips was for when Smaug the dragon first woke up, he was blue in the movie.

We could also get into a very specific nerd trivia and also say it was because in Canada there was a cover of the Hobbit book that came out where he was coloured blue on the cover.

My husband, a friend and I distinctly remembering this all due to our confusion that he was described as red and golden.

 

Anyways sucks that no one won the awesome nails.

What would you like to win if I was doing another contest?
